A Happy Birthday to You (Handsomely Suited)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, when thinking about my favourite technique for the StampingPals challenge this month, I confess I was torn between the Joseph’s Coat Technique and the Tailored Tag technique. In the end, the Joseph’s Coat Technique won, but I still couldn’t resist making another card using the Tailored Tag punch. I love these cards! I usually veer towards making more feminine cards but this time I decided to go for a masculine look. I used the Well Suited Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Handsomely Suited bundle (Handsomely Suited stamp set and Suit & Tie dies).

This is such an easy technique and if you’ve never seen it before, you are going to love it! All you need to do is punch out a heap of shapes and then adhere them to a panel of cardstock. I always start with a panel of cardstock which is the same size as my card front. I can then easily trim the edges and cut the panel to my preferred size. This panel was then attached to a Basic Grey cardstock base.

Moving on to the sentiment, my original idea had been to add a block and have a bow tie placed half on it and half off. I discarded that idea for this card as I thought it might have faded into the background. Instead, I stamped the sentiment (from the Handsomely Suited stamp set) and die cut the panel (using the Stitched Shapes dies) so that the bow tie could sit nicely above it.

I love this idea so much. It is fun and easy and looks so good. It’s perfect for feminine and masculine cards alike. Have I convinced you to give it a go? I hope so!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie

I love the quilted look of the background! I used to love doing something like that decades ago when I had time to use real paper and scrapbook 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much, Becki! I can assure you it is as addictive now as it would have been back then with your scrapbooking. Funnily enough, I never thought to do anything like this with my scrapbooking but now I might just give it a go. Thanks so much for the idea! I really appreciate it! I also really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Hope you have a wonderful day!
